I use click on tab to minimise only to switch back and forth between the current tab and another one. I rarely open a lot of tabs — no more than five usually.
With two tabs open I click on tab 1 to view tab 2 then click on tab 1 again to view tab 1
With more than two tabs open I click on tab n to view it, then click on it again to view tab 1.
